Still pregnant. This morning I had another moment of disbelief that I would ever NOT be pregnant-hard to believe I will get a baby out of this! I thought I would just be waddling forever! I hate to complain, I am not due till the 28th, and I am torn with wanting to work a bit more this week and get him moving. Enough little ctx to keep me awake sometimes, actually sleeping really well the last few nights (with 'well' being a very relative term of course). DD has come down with a cough and low grade fever. I am wondering if it could be RSV, since she doesn't usually cough like this.

Still here too 40+1, really did not think I would still be here.

Wondering how big this babe is going to be, my two that were over ten pounds came a couple of days early........ they were my easiest at home births though!

I'm also due the 28th. I kind of feel silly being so impatient... but it seems like this last stretch is the hardest part of the wait. It didn't help that Sunday morning at 2am I woke up and had quite a few contractions... we were starting to get hopeful, but they petered out.

My husband joked that maybe if I made myself nest then the baby would come. One of my friends teased me that the baby was waiting for me to finish the quilt I wanted to make for baby. I'm skeptical, though... I had a friend who was completely ready two weeks in advance, so I don't think if I nest or finish things it will make the baby come any sooner! (Although I might have less energy to be impatient...)

39 weeks today. Nothing happening here.

I am cool with it, but I have an appointment on Thursday at which they are going to want to start discussing induction (because of the gestational diabetes).

While I am confident this babe is going to come out healthy and well on his own time, I'm worried about the pressure I'll get from my hcp's come Thursday.

So, I'm sort of hoping I suddenly, miraculously go into labor at some point despite having incredibly few symptoms thus far.

I AM happy this thread is here, though, because sometimes it does feel like everyone due in March has already had their babies, even though it is barely halfway through the month.

Gnatty, that's funny. I keep thinking that, too. What is he waiting for? Each little project I finish I think, maybe now, maybe that's what he was waiting for. And then, guess not, he's still comfortable in there.

Can I join too? I am almost at 39 weeks and really thought today would be the day. My mom predicts the 19th. Really, who knows? I have had so many BH and period -like cramps for the past few weeks. I thought he would have come by now!!! No missing plug - where is that plug? I have tried acupuncture, Evening Primrose Oil, homeopathic blue cohosh (still have the black to try yet!). I am so bored - all the projects are done (except for scrubbing the black mold off the windows - maybe I should get to that!). I'll just hang out here for awhile....

Saw the doc this morning, bp is up a bit but not worrisome, everything else looked good. 10 days left to due date!
post #149 of 369
39 weeks and 3 days here. This is the day of my pregnancy w/ DD2 that I had her. No sign of imminent labor today. Time to lace up my running shoes and run full speed around the block till I pass out. Like a PP said, I wake in the mornings these days in absolute shock/denial/dread that I'm pregnant still.
My standard phone greeting now is "still pregnant, no, don't feel like today's the day". Ugh.

That's funny--I think I'm the opposite. I still have a stack of cloth diapers I'm working on, and almost thought he was sure to come, simply because I'm so far from getting them finished. Guess that's the pessimist in me? Maybe I should get to work, lol!
post #151 of 369
well, I finished the last of the diapers, I made an additional gown thingy (it needs snaps but that takes like 5 mins MAX!) everything's washed. There's nothing more to do. I'm tired of prepping. I'm tired of being alone with the 2 yr old (March Break last week was BRUTAL!) and I'm really ready to have my wife home and for the new baby to be here!!!!!

Enough already! I'm done! (no signs of labour here...)

I almost don't even come to read anymore, not that the birth announcements aren't wonderful, but do you realize currently it's this thread and one other that aren't birth announcements? Kinda depressing when we are only halfway through the month.

I'm not due until the end of the week. I've felt crappy since July (but heck I haven't thrown up since Thursday that is something right?) I just want to move on to the next chapter.

Yesterday I had 9 hours of contractions that went nowhere. I see an acupunturist tomorrow, my blood pressure is starting to creap up, she seems positive that I'm an "excellent canidate" for this working and getting the ball rolling, we'll see.

Still here...38w today. On Thurs was 2cm, 50%effaced and the midwife could feel the baby's head when she checked me. Lost the mucus plug & had bloody show on Weds. Fri had contrax every 10-15 mins, which stopped after a glass of wine.

Despite thinking I was going to have the baby Saturday or Sunday, I'm still here, with no contrax besides BH ones.

No changes here...I am due Friday but really doubt she'll show up by then. I just found out today I have a UTI so now I've got to go on antibiotics and eat lots of yogurt so I don't get a yeast infection :/ I am actually really surprised by the UTI because the symptoms are so different from when I get one and I'm not pregnant (usually lots of buring, pain and blood with in a day or two...I've probably had this one for a week and the only "symptom" is I have to pee every hour).

WELL then!!!

Had my cervix checked today, I was 4 cm dilated; stripped my membranes, midwife said she would be shocked not to see me in the next 24 hours. I asked her to put it in writing, and she said no, evil woman.

Fast forward 8 hours, and I'm having some rather intense pains in my lower abdomen, every 8 minutes or so, and have been having them for about 2 hours now. Gonna give it another 15 minutes or so before I wake up the husband and call the sitter.

It's been about 2.5 hours since my last post... and, DRUMROLL: I AM STILL PREGNANT! I don't feel like making dinner, If I do another load of laundry I'll throw myself into the washer, too (no way I'd ever fit though), don't wanna fetch another sippy, don't wanna do nothin', tired of answering the phone giving the same old answer to the same old people and hearing the same old unsolicited advice about what worked for someone's best friend's second cousin...Waaah!
I am comforted to know that I am not the only one here going bonkers
post #157 of 369
I'm sticking to this thread ONLY. I was complaining to DH that the first page is announcements only, but thankfully someone had the courage to start this thread. Judging by the number of pages, I'm not the only one waiting!

Today is my due date and still nothing. Baby's not engaged either, which makes me nervous on top of it I've got another week until we start some natural induction methods. . hopefully it won't come to that!

I feel your pain! All I want to do is sleep....

crazydiamond, I have a good friend who's second baby didn't engage until active labor. She described it as a really crazy sensation after a few hours of light, early contractions when boom the baby dropped and things kicked into gear! So, don't worry, it doesn't necessarily mean anything that baby hasn't dropped yet

im due tomorrow... and still pregnant here. I'm so done. I've BEEN done, ugh! Taking homeopathic blue and black cohosh, EPO internally and orally, some sex (that part is hard, lol), walking, pressure points, clary sage baths every day for the last week... i just dont know what to do anymore! Since thursday i've had some strong, annoying ctx, but no regularity or progression or anything... im soooooo tired of this!
post #160 of 369
Grrrr...

I started getting everything ready for the trip to the hospital, got a bag of clothes for DD, and the contractions stopped. So I went to bed, and woke up STILL PREGNANT with no contractions.
